Miracle: OSPFv3 supports multiple address families
I never believed I would see this: OSPF is becoming a multi-protocol routing protocol. RFC 5838 specifies how you can redefine the instance ID field in OSPFv3 to support four address families (IPv6 and IPv4 unicast+multicast).
A month ago, I would have added CLNP and IPX to the list; unfortunately they’ve missed that particular window of opportunity ;)
It looks like this feature currently runs in PowerPoint and in a very-limited-availability image (if you’ve seen it working on an actual box, let me know).

/me likes it!
Do you know if we now can use OSPFv3 as well as IS-IS to have both IPv6 and IPv4 in one protocol?
